Animals in Danger

Some of the animals and birds in the rainforest, such as monkeys and woodpeckers, live in the treetops. They are always swinging and flying from one tree to another looking for food among the leaves and branches. They even sleep in the treetops so they do not have to come down to the ground.巴士英语www.xiao84.com

Have you heard that such animals and birds in the rainforests are in danger? Because people are cutting down so many trees in the forests, the animals are losing their homes. Do you know the reasons for it? Yes, people want wood, paper and land. As a result many animals and plants are dying. Some forests are so badly damaged that they become deserts.

中文译文

濒危动物

一些雨林中的动物和鸟类生活在树顶上,例如猴子和啄木鸟。它们总是从一棵树荡到或飞到另一棵树上,在树叶和树枝间寻找食物。它们甚至在树顶睡觉,所以它们不用到地面上来。

你知道吗?雨林中的这些动物正处于危险中。因为人们砍伐了森林中的许多树,动物们失去了家园。你知道人们砍树的原因吗?是的,人们需要木材、纸和土地。所以,许多动物和植物正在消亡。一些森林遭到了严重的破坏,变成了沙漠。
